A Stunning Semi-hollowbody with Wide-ranging Tones

The PRS Hollowbody II 10-Top electric guitar looks, sounds, and plays like a dream. This instrument features one of the most flexible tone-shaping systems you'll find in the Sweetwater Guitar Gallery. Select the Hollowbody II's 58/15 humbuckers for a purely electric sound, or blend in the woody quality of the onboard LR Baggs/PRS piezo pickup system for great acoustic tones. Combining these two diverse pickup systems gives you an absolutely phenomenal sonic range. And that's only part of what's so special about the PRS Hollowbody II.

Beautiful playing, looking, and sounding semi-hollowbody

The Hollowbody II has long been a staple in the Paul Reed Smith line of production electric guitars. Its semi-hollow design adds warmth, depth, and character to the nuanced tones produced by the vintage-voiced PRS 58/15 humbucking pickups. The top and back are carved from gorgeous high-grade figured maple. The rosewood-capped mahogany neck further adds warmth and midrange definition to your tone, ensuring your new Hollowbody II will be equally at home with thick, sustaining rock tones as it is on crystal-clean jazz playing.

PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system

The PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system on the Hollowbody II guitar gives you access to the natural acoustic sound of its semi-hollow construction. A control knob lets you blend in the sound of this pickup with the sound of the Hollowbody II's humbuckers, adding a woody quality and extra sustain to your tone. There's also a separate output next to the Hollowbody II's main output that lets you send just the sound of the PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system to an acoustic amplifier.

Pattern profile neck

Perfected after years of prototyping, the Hollowbody II's PRS Pattern neck is an updated Wide Fat neck style that's based on designs Paul Reed Smith crafted in the '70s and '80s for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton, and Howard Leese of Heart. The Hollowbody II's rosewood fingerboard feels great under your fingertips, and with exquisite mother-of-pearl and paua heart bird inlays, this guitar is unmistakably a fine PRS.

PRS Hollowbody II Electric Guitar Features:
  • Semi-hollowbody electric guitar with acoustic and electric tones

One Fantastic Guitar

This guitar is as close to perfect as possible! The sounds are terrific. With just the tone controls and pickup switches, I can go from acoustic, to jazz, to country, to blues, etc. The sustain is great. We drove to Fort Wayne last April to check out the PRS Hollowbody II and checked the finishes and woods on the various PRS guitars. Aaron Smith is my sales engineer and he was a great help. After checking everything out, it took a few phone calls to get everything right after getting feedback from the factory on what would and would not work. I ended up with an Artist Grade Hollowbody II in a Red Fireburst finish. It took about six months, but was well worth the wait. I've had it for about a month and it meets the PRS standard. It plays, looks, and sounds great. It is difficult to put it down. Anyone looking for a guitar that pretty much does it all can't go wrong with this model.
Music background: Playing for over 50 years

The tones you can squeeze out of this thing are astronomical. All the best woods, controls and attention to detail make this guitar one of the finest I've played or seen and its light weight will astound you when you pick it up. Plug it into a good Marshall stack and let the controls guide you through a maze of sounds. Sustain is top notch and will impress any one that uses sustain.
Music background: Was lead vocals in a rock band from 1965 to 1969.

Beauty and the Beast!

This is one awesome guitar that is actually two guitars in one package! The 57/08 humbuckers deliver a wide range of tones both clean and overdriven. The piezo pickup adds another sound dimension with its acoustic tonality, and the ability to mix magnetic and acoustic is just great. I also love the light weight of this instrument. Mine is only 5.5 pounds, making it a delight to strap on and play for hours. Add to this, American-made PRS quality/looks, and you've got one fantastic instrument. Also, don't let the fact that it's a hollowbody fool you into thinking it can't deliver serious overdriven, rock solo tone! On the contrary - this guitar is a beautiful beast! If I could add just one thing to this amazing guitar, I would like the 57/08s to be 4-conductor pickups so they could be coil-tapped for single coil options. PRS does it again!
